I have been seeing Dr. Goldgeier for many many years and most recent under the new system that he has taken on. I have to say that I was a little discouraged at the beginning but then came in and was set at ease. The paperwork that was given to me at checkout to send to my Insurance company was pretty much complete! Made things so easy for me! I would highly recommending that if you haven't seen Dr. Goldgeier under his new system that you at least try it once and see...you won't be sorry!

Dr. Goldeier has switched to a Family of the Practice method which is a direct set price for a normal visit, including some things not easily covered if you go through insurance. I really appreciate this, along with his professionalism and his commitment of standing by his work. I would recommend him highly.

I see Dr goldgeier twice a year for mole checks and i was relieved to know i could have the suspicious mole biopsied on the spot. In the past with insurance rules, i had to wait anxiously for 2 weeks before it could be done. With no extra charge it was taken off and sent to the best lab. And i wont have sleepless nights worrying about that bad mole. Friends of the practice is a great system in my opinion

Dr. Goldgeier is very knowledgeable, his level of expertise is invaluable.

Not impressed with Dr. Goldgeier and his bedside manner. Arrogant. Ended up always seeing his PA who is a delightful woman who is kind, patient and has a sense of humor. The rating for him is 0 and for her a 5. Changing doctors because they stopped taking insurance. They only cater to the upper class now.

Knowledgeable doctor...who is not kind, courteous or professional. I had to ask the nurse for a cover up so I did not have to wait in the exam room half naked. Dr. Goldwater is no longer taking insurance starting January 2017. If you can't afford office visits out of your pocket, you are out of luck. Too bad. Some people cannot afford that. I wouldn't recommend him to another person.
Rochester, NY |
My grandmother, a fit 82-year-old who is strong and dignified, was treated very poorly at her last visit. While he does seem to be a qualified physician, Dr. Goldgeier's arrogance about his abilities edged into the emotionally-abusive when my grandmother voiced her uncertainty about returning. Furthermore, he disrespected and demeaned her, even suggesting she liked this behavior, which disgusts me. His condescending and abusive patriarchal manner is completely unprofessional.

My children, wife, parents, and I have trusted Goldgeier for over ten years.
in Penfield, NY |
I have been a patient of Dr. Goldgeier for many years and he has been a source of great confidence that my skin is in good hands. He is highly knowledgeable, totally professional and a straight forward no nonsense practitioner. If one is the type of person who surrounds oneself with the finest professionals then Dr. Goldgeier is a very smart selection to be included in that group.
